Tie a Scarf into a Summer Vest

My sister gave me a beautiful mint horse print scarf for my birthday.  I adore it! She also taught me how to tie the scarf so I can wear it as a vest over singlets and swimwear (looks especially gorgeous over togs when you want to be just a little more covered post swim).  Always a good thing to be able to extent accessory items!

One

The scarf needs to be large (and light)

Tie in a knot.

It should make a circle like this.  With the knot to the back slip arms through the opening, like you would putting on a jacket (little demo in the video below)

Adjust so the knot is in the middle at the back.
